My daughter put me onto the Forage Oakland project. Created a year ago by my daughter’s college friend, Asiya Wadud, the project addresses “how everyone can benefit from viewing their neighborhood as a veritable edible map.” It’s an interesting concept and one that is as old as the Bible. Israelite law demanded that the corners of grain fields not be harvested. Also, any grain dropped during harvest was to be left for the poor to be picked up for food. This served the dual purpose of an early welfare program but also prevented the farm owners from hoarding.
Asi has come up with a very interesting project and, I have to say, she has some excellent photography as well!
